    Looks like Disney is moving full throttle on the Star Wars sequels. Kasdan was one of the writers for "The Empire Strikes Back".

    What we need is a good Star Wars movie written well by good writers. Maybe this series can become like James Bond, 22 well loved movies over 50 years.

    Disney is taking the right steps to make that happen.

    james bond is a good analogy...

    there are ALOT of stinkers in there...but they managed to right the ship and recenter around the different actors.

    I have not seen the new one...but Goldeneye and Casino Royale are great movies of recent era...actually elevated the franchise.

    then you have garbage like quantum of solace and die another day...so that's the dull edge of the sword.

    IF we can get a good, solid, "B" level story that has some broad appeal and ties things back to the 70's-80's flicks...then they have a winner and can erase alot of the smudge of the "prequel" era.

    Anyone else notice over the holiday weekend that Rick McCallum (slinger of cinematic garbage and lucas co-conspirator) quietly "retired" shortly before the acquisition?

    That sounds like " Here's your gold mickey watch...but there's no seat on the ship for you"

    GOOD MOVE:thumbsup2
